Sad News for the Purple

Earlier today somebody came across our site by searching these 3 words " Kenechi Udeze Cancer", I thought nothing of this at the time seeing as we often get odd searches that land a person here. Tonight I was watching the local new, which is odd because I normally get my news from Jon Stewart, but Fox ran a story saying that Udeze does indeed have cancer and it is leukemia. Leukemia is a cancer of the blood or bone marrow. Its a serious thing and its something that many people don't recover from. It sounds like this was caught early on which is very good, but it is too soon to know how severe the cancer is.

In 4 years and 51 games with the Vikings the 20th overall selection has made 117 tackles, 11 sacks and 2 forced fumbles. I figured that the Vikings would be looking to pick up another defensive end early in the draft, but this is not the reason I was hoping they would go out looking for one. Here are the top DEs ranked by

We here at Some People's Kids hope that Udezi's cancer turns out to be one of the more treatable versions and that he has a quick recovery and a long, productive career with the Vikings.
